Rule of thumb is 2.5x cash flow is the value of the company. 150mm x 2.5 x 1%= your stake in a fair world. World isn’t fair. ...

Probably B shares and waterfalls are extremely complicated. You’re at the mercy of the PE firm and your CEO’s ability to negotiate. Do you know what percentage of the company your shares make up?...

Pool Season W1D1 in the books. Got a really good pump, broke more of a sweat than I did in maybe any workout in FOTH 1 and 2. I ran this program last August and had the following improvements. Up 40 lbs in 3 rep back squats Up 20 lbs in 4 rep bench Up 10 lbs in 1 arm rows Strangely BB uprig...

Two questions: 1. What's the best supplement for joint health, as I go up in weight I am feeling more stress on my joints. 2. What workouts do you miss that aren't included in these plans. I used to love chest fly's dumbbell, machine, or cable. Also miss cable rows, hamstring curls, le...

Wrapping up FOTH2 this week, ended up stretching out longer than planned because of crap getting in the way where I couldn't hit 5 days/week. I wouldn't run this one again, I preferred FOTH1 and would run it twice instead of 1 and 2 back to back. I preferred 4 days a week with more intensity than...

My policy has never missed a dividend pay...

You really have to do your homework to understand how whole life will work as a part of your personal finance strategy, not just as an investment. My wife and I have exhausted all our tax advantaged investment accounts. As soon as our first kid was born I took out a whole life policy on my wife (b...

Have any of you guys read this white paper? The argument of using whole life as a volatility buffer vs. the "buy term and invest the difference" strategy is compelling. What are your thoughts on this? https://www.liquiditymap.com/assets/integrating-whole-life-insurance-into-a-retirement-income...
